SCI-FI cult classics will be shown in the Argyle Street Arches as part of the Glasgow Film Festival's special events.

The 16th annual festival will run in the city from February 26 to March 8 showcasing the best new films as well as the classics.

Argyle Street Arches will be transformed into Neo-Glasgow from Friday, February 28 to Sunday, March 1.

The weekend will see beloved sci-fi cult classics returning to the big screen alongside a host of special on-site free events that will run throughout the day, teaching audiences how to separate science from fiction, survive the apocalypse and save the planet.

Experience hi-tech light installations and interactive pop-up performances, plus sustainable food, drinks and handmade gifts from the stalls at Platform market.

The takeover kicks off on Friday night with Arnold Schwarzenegger 1990 film Total Recall.

On Saturday night, the 25th-anniversary screening of Tank Girl (1995) starring Lori Petty, Naomi Watts, and Ice-T will take place.

On Sunday, the timeless heartwarmer Wall-E will be shown. Neo-Glasgow then bows out in style on Sunday night with Train to Busan (2016).

Allison Gardner, Glasgow Film Festival Co-director, said: “The special events are one of my favourite parts of working at Glasgow Film Festival. Every year the team bring a special kind of magic to well-loved films and a new audience are introduced to our wonderful festival.

"As a huge fan of sci-fi films, I am so looking forward to Neo-Glasgow and the terrors and exciting adventures we’ll encounter together. As they say in Total Recall – Get ready for the ride of your life.”

Allan Hunter, Glasgow Film Festival Co-director, added: “Who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend in Neo-Glasgow when the films are this cool?

"The mind-blowing, Oscar-nominated Total Recall might just be Arnold Schwarzenegger’s finest hour, Tank Girl celebrates its silver anniversary as a firm cult favourite, and the zombie virus chiller Train to Busan ensures you will never feel the same about the daily commute.

"Then along comes Wall-E to break your heart. It is a fantastic line-up that is bound to sell-out quickly.”

Tickets to all the film screenings at Neo-Glasgow are tomorrow at noon from and GFT Box Office.
